To tip or not to tip?

Tip­ping dif­fers from coun­try to coun­try.

What make seem a nor­mal tip in Canada or the U.S. might not be in Lon­don, for ex­am­ple.

Some ad­vice from travel vet Rick Steves:

Restau­rant tips are more mod­est in Europe than in Amer­ica. At restau­rants, check the menu to see if ser­vice is in­cluded; if it isn’t, a tip of 5–10 per cent is nor­mal. … Tip­ping is an is­sue only at restau­rants that have wait­ers and wait­resses. If you or­der your food at a counter (in a pub, for ex­am­ple), don’t tip.”
